I logged in this morning and realized that my last post was well over a week ago. Not good. Where o' where did all my time go? I try to post once a week or more. Apologies to those who check in regularly. I guess I will have to stop sitting on the couch eating bon bons! (like that happens!!)
I have been crazy busy these last few weeks. Just regular kid stuff (end of season track meets, special projects, soccer games) and a few projects now and again (new class projects and some other classes). But this week will be by far the worst! We have 2 BIG milestones in our house this week: my daughter is being confirmed and my youngest receives his first Communion. That means rehearsals, extra people here, and some serious organization for me! Oh, and did I mention that my parents are coming? They are! For a whole month! We are elated. Can hardly wait to see them. There was a point at the end of last week and over the weekend that I did not think they would come. My dad had a significant health problem and it looked like I would be flying there to help. But thankfully he is recovering very well and they will make their way to us this week. Whew. Thank you Lord!
A little about me (or really about mom and dad).....I am an only child. My parents were those who should have been parents to dozens of children because I think they were fabulous as parents go. But that was not to be. They instead got to be a part of all my friends lives and make their mark as mentors and strong foundations for me and my friends. My mom is from a large family and I knew I wanted lots of babies when I got married. So having five beauties is wonderful for my parents. All the play they want and then send 'em home! Actually, I have to admit that there are some of the times with my children that if my parents had not been there I am not sure what I would have done. Fast forward....they retired, they moved to their dreamland, and we get to see them a couple times a year. We talk each and every day (thank you for unlimited long distance plans) and I still feel that they are a part of my life and my childrens.
Back to today. I have a list for the day. I am supposed to be in a show this week. I had planned on basically selling my cards and the stash of minis I have on hand. So, I have about 50 more cards to complete. I think I can do it. I have a mental game plan. All depends on how things go today and if I can stay up til midnight!
I want to leave you with this pic:
I'm off.....time to eject my little lovelies from their peaceful slumber. Check back this week. I have to take some photos of my cards and will post a few.
